Grilled Chicken Thighs
Green Salad with Red Pepper, Cucumbers, and Radishes
My husband took a two-day motorcycle training class this weekend and I knew he would be weary when he returned home. I went with a comfort-food menu. As a bonus it was also fairly easily managed by one person over the course of several hours.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Dinner this week was brought to you by rainy weather which ruined my plans for grilled chicken. A couple hours in a soy sauce based marinade turned the standard chicken thighs into something very flavorful. The rest of the menu made use of produce that was waiting to be used up. All told a rather good meal.

Rice with Mushrooms and Onion
The turkey came first, at least in this menu preparation. It had been sitting, frozen and waiting, in the freezer since after Christmas when my mother gifted it to me so it wouldn’t take up room in her freezer. My husband mentioned the rice in passing, thought I think he was more interested in how we have used the leftovers in the past than the side dish itself. The other sides dishes came from foraging at the megamart for what looked good.
Dessert came from looking at a past menu. The cake itself is not very sweet; the frosting makes up for it with gusto.
Mexican Green Rice
Skillet Cauliflower with Red Pepper
Roasted Asparagus with Sherry Vinegar
V asked if she could bring two guests this week so I wanted a heaping lot of food that would be acceptable to teenagers. Tacos came to mind, ’cause who doesn’t enjoy a taco now and then. I, of course, made too much food.
Hot Cross Buns, for dessert
Tonight’s menu was a tribute to the cultural holiday that happened yesterday by which I mean St. Patrick’s Day. A couple of older recipes mixed with a fresh green salad. Our friend G provided a wee bit of local craft Stout as well.
